    Georgia Newbie

    Hi, just wanted to say thanks for all of the excellent information this forum provides. I recently had an idea to hike some of the AT here in Georgia and was looking for a lightweight tent. No way I could afford those prices though.Through my searching I found this site. Everything looks so interesting so I gave it a go. Check out my $20 experiment..

    Hammock - $6.50 3 yds. (unknown fabric from WM (burn test seems to be poly)
    Straps - $4.00 6' WM
    Shower Curtain Tarp - 2 from dollar store - $2
    Fiberglass Tape - 2 rolls from dollar store - $2
    Duct Tape - $4 (already had)
    Parachord - $2 WM

    Going to test it out and see if I like it. If so, will go ahead and invest in a good tarp, rs hammock, and amsteel for the suspension.
